Pilot #7

Moving Murals Hagalund

#movingmuralshagalund

Moving Murals Hagalund is a unique art project mixing mural painting with projection mapping. This public work was created in collaboration by video artists, street artists, young filmmakers and art school students.

The aim of the pilot study was to draw attention to a neighborhood in transition. How can moving images play an active role in the development of an industrial area? What part could imagination play? Underlying the plan was the notion that local creativity could be used to open up discussions regarding the future prospects of the former industrial area Hagalund.

Location

Moving Murals Hagalund took place in:

  • Hagalund industrial area

The keyword of Moving Murals Hagalund was layer-by-layer. This was visible in both its artistic rendering and choice of digital tools, as well as in its knowledge exchange. Moving Murals Hagalund employed a mix of murals and projection techniques with overlaid videos. In parallel with the practical work in the form of workshops, an international seminar examined the theoretical implications.

Audience

The pilot study primarily targeted the local residents of Solna, but also train commuters who would view the work.

The pilot study Moving Murals Hagalund fulfilled its goals by problematizing and supporting urban development through moving images and media art.
